I want to convert my QB account to Peachtree to learn how to use Peachtree. I don't want to corrupt the original QB files so I copied the QBW file to a thumb drive and then attempted to use the Peachtree conversion utility with the QBW file on the thumb drive as the source file. I get an error message that says the business file I'm trying to open is in use, try later. The help file is vague on how to do the conversion process. Do I have to create the business first in Peachtree? Can the QB file be copied and converted without destroying the original QB files? Or has Peachtree decided you will never use QB again once you import the files into Peachtree?
